The Original Surfer

We had just parked at the Shell Island overlook on the Oregon coast and I was wondering what to sketch, when I spotted a sealion surfing in on a big wave.  The sealion was just underwater and obviously using the momentum of the wave.  I never seen that before ... but seldom am I there when the waves are so big.  Look carefully and you'll see his underwater blob in the first sketch.

The second sketch is looking south from the same overlook.


  1. if you keep you eyes open inspiration just shows up. I can feel the movement in the water. Nice job on both.

  2. Thank you for making me feel as if I were there!
